Zoll Launches R Series
First and Only "Code-Ready" Defribrillator For Hospitals
"Hospital clinicians know that the worst time to find out a defibrillator isn’t working is during a cardiac arrest event," said Richard A. Packer, President and Chief Executive Officer of ZOLL. "The R Series is the first and only 'Code-Ready' defibrillator. It raises the bar on what clinicians will expect from their defibrillators."
R Series: OneStep™ Simplicity
The R Series offers several firsts in the area of simplifying operation. It includes a OneStep System that provides a single cable for pacing, monitoring, and defibrillation. It also includes one electrode set through which clinicians can monitor, pace, defibrillate, and get real-time feedback on chest compressions, also known as Real CPR Help™.
R Series Smart Tools Help Users Improve CPR Performance More than half of in-hospital codes involve non-shockable rhythms.* In such cases, the only treatment for such rhythms is high-quality CPR, with minimal interruptions. The R Series offers See-Thru CPR™ functionality that helps clinicians minimize interruptions in CPR performance. While viewing the ECG on a monitor/defibrillator, artifact (i.e., "noise") from chest compressions make it difficult to discern the presence of an organized heart rhythm unless compressions are halted. See-Thru CPR filters out this artifact so clinicians can view an underlying rhythm without stopping chest compressions.
In addition to See-Thru CPR, the R Series offers a visual aid known as the CPR Index™ that allows clinicians to see how well they are performing the rate and depth of chest compressions in real time. This Index, along with audible prompts (i.e., "Push Harder" and "Good Compressions"), helps clinicians improve CPR performance by integrating rate and depth into a single indicator on an easy-to-read display. With this feedback, clinicians know how well they are performing compressions and can quickly adjust their compressions to improve blood flow.
Additionally, all CPR performance data and the entire resuscitation record, including the ECG, can be downloaded into ZOLL CodeNet® and reviewed for quality assurance and training purposes. CodeNet is the first system to help document, review, and manage a complete set of data for in-hospital resuscitation events, including both code event data and defibrillator data, on one synchronized timeline.
A New Standard of Comprehensive Self-testing and Readiness Checks
The R Series extends testing beyond shock delivery and checks more than 40 measures of readiness, including the presence of the correct cables and electrodes, the type of electrode, and other important electronics. The R Series can also verify the condition and expiration date of the electrode set. All of this testing occurs without disconnecting electrodes or paddles, or requiring additional equipment to test shock delivery. The system provides a printed or electronic log to alert hospital personnel of any concerns in advance of a code. A simple green checkmark indicates that the R Series is fully ready for use.
